CoCSC Mini Meets
Cambridge Swimming Club Mini-Meets are an ideal introduction to competition aimed at swimmers who are new to, or with little competitive swimming experience. The Mini-Meet allows them to gain race experience, and for new swimmers obtain their first official times at a licensed meet in a low pressure environment. The meet is aimed at swimmers in Academy, Pathway and Para squads.
The Mini-Meets are level 4 licensed events held at Parkside Pools, there are usually three events with timed heats and no finals with Spot Prizes awarded. What this means is that your swimmer may win a heat but not be top of their age group so wouldn’t win a medal. This can be hard to understand the first time, so this season for the first time we are also allocating prizes to the heat winners at a Mini-Meet. Just remember, they have done well, they have tried something different and started their swimming journey…..
For most swimming competitions, entry times are taken from the British Swimming Rankings which come out of licensed meets only. This is why we run mini-meets to give our swimmers a chance to get a ranked time so that they can swim in other competitions. If a swimmer does not have a Swim England licensed time for an event their coach will advise on an appropriate entry time. Entry process is through an emailed link, usually sent out 4 weeks in advance of the event, the entry asks you to commit or not commit your swimmer to the meet. Link Swimming Clubs Royston and Bottisham are also invited.
